Northwestel wins joint marketing case at CRTC
The CRTC has granted Northwestel Inc., Canada’s northernmost telco, the right to jointly market services with those of wireless affiliate Northwestel Mobility Inc. The commission approved an application the company filed on February 5, 2003 (Telecom Decision 2003-65). The removal of joint marketing prohibitions brings the company in line with other ILECs in the country. This isn’t the first time the company tried to have the joint marketing provisions lifted. It filed an application on March 8, 1999, which was denied on May 12, 2000 in Order 2000-396.
